Puel: Southampton should feel 'shame' after draw with Man Utd

Mourinho insists the fact United will finish sixth regardless of the outcome of Sunday's visit of Crystal Palace and that their visitors are also safe from relegation, with three teams already down, means they should instead be playing on Saturday.

"We can feel shame after this game because we had many opportunities in the second half", he said".

"David is the top in the world and obviously we want to keep him".

"After the moment Palace beat Hull and Hull were relegated and Swansea are safe, the match should have been moved".

"It's frustrating for me". I hope you don't kill me when you see my team. European opponents, I've noticed, struggle to understand Fellaini's style, nearly as if they're encountering a new species for the first time, and his bombastic presence against Ajax could very easily lob a spanner in the works, as they say. When I know the battle is lost I don't fight.

"The next match Joel (Pereira, United's 20-year-old third choice goalkeeper) is playing his first match in the Premier League".

None were more important than Romero's penalty save in the second half. "It's a problem perhaps for us but in the second half I'm happy with our comeback".

"I think all of them gave me positive feelings".

"I hope to play Sergio in the final and hopefully we don't have problems with the keepers".

Jose Mourinho has insisted that Manchester United will do everything they can to keep David De Gea at the club beyond the summer transfer window. "We need two top goalkeepers and a top young goalkeeper and this is what we have". Spain's national team goalkeeper; Argentina's national team goalkeeper; it's wonderful to have it. The Saints managed 17 shots, but could not break through Sergio Romero in the United goal, who produced a number of fine saves throughout the match.

Despite the hard-fought draw, in which Southampton would have won but for the brilliance of United's stand-in goalkeeper Sergio Romero, manager Claude Puel remains under pressure.

"I try to stay focused about our last game now", he said.

"I think we played a good team, a good game, against a team that tried to win and tried to finish well and finish eighth".

For this reason, we must take them on, but given 10 of their last 15 at Old Trafford have finished all-square we'll keep the draw onside.
